Singer Sarah McLachlan's "One Dream" has been chosen to be part of NBC's marketing campaign around the Vancouver Olympics, the network announced today. The song will be used "as a unique part of NBC's marketing campaign," and the video for the track will debut on Jan. 24 during a telecast of the U.S. figure skating championships. It had been rumored that McLachlan's song would be used by NBC since it first hit the Internet last September, causing pundits like Perez Hilton to discuss the track.
The song is "written in the spirit of the Olympics," according to a news release from McLachlan's label, Nettwerk Records, and is inspired "by the athletes of the world as they strive to reach their Olympic goals." The song is available for download through digital retailers, Nettwerk says.
This summer McLachlan will headline the rejuvenated Lilith Fair concert festival, and is expected to release a new album. Her last non-seasonal studio album was released in 2003. On Thursday a number of acts were added to the Lilith Fair lineup, including Norah Jones, Cat Power, and Loretta Lynn. The festival also announced 15 additional stops on the tour, including dates in San Diego, Salt Lake City and Houston.
